Oh, remember back in February, when the Applebee’s in Terminal 2 at LA/Ontario International Airport shut down, “temporarily”?
Well, things haven’t gotten any better.
In fact, they’re worse.
Now, the T.G.I. Friday’s in Terminal 4 is no more.
Cruiser’s is celebrating its grand opening today (November 22) through Sunday (November 24). Click the photo above to see some of the grand opening specials.
It’s been a short while since we’ve updated you all on recent restaurant changes.
Here’s a few that readers have tipped us on and a couple we’ve discovered just driving around the Inland Empire.
Head over the jump to get started.
In case you missed it, downtown Upland has lost one restaurant, is losing another, but is gaining a third.
Already closed is Aria Restaurant and Lounge, which was owned by the same folks who own Antonino’s Italian Restaurant, Haandi Indian Cuisine, Sixty 6 Sports Bar and Lounge and the Magic Lamp Inn in Rancho Cucamonga.
Facebook fan Diana reports that Charlie’s Red, White and Blue American Deli and Bar is moving into the space at 296 N. Second Ave.
In a sign that the economy still has some recovery to do, we’ve spotted four local restaurants that have closed in recent weeks.
Chino’s La Crêperie Café, an offshoot of the original in Long Beach’s Belmont Shores, has closed. The location, a former Black Angus, might’ve been just too large for La Crêperie. The original is a much more intimate location. Also, the owners have switched the small chain’s downtown Long Beach location from crepes to Mediterranean and dubbed it La Shish.
The deed is done.
fresh & easy has been sold.
And in the end, it wasn’t the expected buyers, the German company Aldi Nord, which owns Trader Joe’s.
Instead, it was the former owners of Food 4 Less and Ralphs — the Los Angeles-based Yucaipa Companies — who purchased the chain from Tesco.
Carlo’s Italian Bakery Pizza may have closed its Montclair restaurant, but the business lives on.
A brief post on the business’ Facebook page from last Thursday explains that the restaurant is closed, but they will continue with catering and brewery events, including an event tomorrow (September 5) at Dale Bros. Brewery.
Not to infer any connection between the two events, but our very own Elaine “Lunch with ‘Lainey” Lehman wrote a favorable review of Carlo’s just a few weeks ago.
